Using running to make a difference is what the Enduring Voices 100 mile (160km), run is all about. We are raising awareness while running through central Vietnam. I have done races for myself but there is something about putting your own body on the line so that others don’t have too, that uplifts the spirit and give a sense of purpose to getting up and running even when I really do not want to do it. With human trafficking growing so quickly around the world, we must do all we can to prevent it from happening. It is up to us not to look the other way but do everything we can to make a difference. Will you please consider supporting me, and the other runners, in our efforts to combat the evil facing these children? Thank you, and bless you!
Enduring Voices 100-mile Run 2016
Enduring Voices 100 Mile Run - 2016 will be completed from October 4-6. Our runners will start at Cinnamon Top, a remote mountain near the Laotian border in the central highlands of Vietnam. We will finish near the China Sea, a distance of 100 miles across Quang Nam Province, the entire width of central Vietnam! Along the way, we will pass through numerous villages, orphanages, and schools, visiting the children of Vietnam along the way. We have room for individual runners and relay teams, but each must be able to run 33 miles per day for three consecutive days.
New this year is a Simul-Run! Runners who wish to participate, but aren't able to travel to Vietnam, can accumulate miles between September 30 and October 6.
We aim to raise $50,000 this year, and ask that individuals raise support through our fundraising page. Whether you will be in Vietnam, or running at home, we appreciate your dedication and support!
Orphan Voice is a faith-based, orphan relief organization that meets the needs of “the least of these” in Vietnam and Southeast Asia. We work to protect orphans, children living in state institutions, special needs children including the deaf, families at risk to place their child in an orphanage, and children and youth at risk for sexual or labor trafficking.
We will care for the orphan,
Wherever she may be found.
If he is thirsty, we will give him drink;
If she is hungry, we will give her bread;
If he is naked, we will clothe him;
If she is homeless, we will shelter her;
If he is without comfort we will hold him,
Until he knows Everlasting Love.
Tony Brewer, Director
